Christine Le Roux from SA to ARTerra to write

Christine Le Roux é uma escritora sul africana, que procura o ARTErra para poder trabalhar em dois dos seus livros.
Apesar de viver num local bastante tranquilo e isolado, onde muitas vezes também acolhe artistas em residência, sentiu a necessidade de ela própria enquanto artista estar envolvida num contexto diferente e onde pode gerir o seu tempo  com o foco no terminus destes dois livros.

Cornelia Christina le Roux (writing as Christine Barkhuizen le Roux) lives on a farm in the Little Karooin South Africa. This area is in the South Western region of the Cape Province. The nearest town Barrydale is 30km away. Her husband farms with dairy cattle, vineyard and apricots. The area is remote and secluded, which Christine believes, turned her to writing. “I had to make the rocks and the veld my friends – the nearest neighbours are 6 km away. I have a footing in the literary world, but it is good that I can escape and be by myself and the characters I create . . . .”

Sigrid Keunen (Belgium) - CRINKLES & CRACKLES


Sigrid Keunen estará em residência cerca de 2 semanas a desenvolver o seu projecto Crinkles & Crackles.
Esta artista de nacionalidade belga cruza no seu trajecto a música, o teatro, a performance, a composição.

"As a musician, performer, actress & composer, my performance work is hybrid in nature through its dialectics, crossovers and synergies with the fine arts.
During my training as a classical viola player, I took several master classes in Belgium, Swiss and France and I graduated in Antwerp (Belgium) in 1999. I chose to be a freelancer, in order to expand my search for artistic expression, outside the various conventional chamber and symphonies orchestras in which I have worked over the last ten years. Currently I work as a freelance viola player for the Orchestra Philharmonique de Liège (Belgium) and also as a freelance guide in De Munt/La Monnaie (opera theatre in Brussels).

‘Cicerone (guide) of the inner fantasy’ is the title of my current research period (2014-15) and a trajectory that mainly investigates the exploration of an ‘impulse’ within the inner fantasy. (VGC Grant -City of Brussels-)
My Art Education Program is an extension of my working method and this has led me to design two components: SIGI'S BOAT and ‘SHIP OF CREATIVITY’.

I look very much forward to evolve my work-in-progress CRINKLES & CRACKLES  during the residency in ARTERRA.

More info about my artistic language on www.hereiamtoo.com







Following work-in-progress to be executed during the residency in Arterra:


CRINKLES & CRACKLES movement / sound / square

FRAMEWORK
An imprinted stone story, an embossment, an imprint, a relief
What are the figures representing? What is the story behind?
How important is the second layer of the embossment?


QUEST
Evolving the story board.
How to bring out an appropriate correlation in this composition between music, sound, movement and material? How to compound them so in the end it provokes a perpetuum mobile on itself.



 
CRINKLES & CRACKLES / work-in-progress / detail



BACKGROUND
A crumpled up reality, an imprint of thoughts and reality
What do we see? What do we perceive? What are we able to notice?
What do we want to tell? What not? How do we tell our story? What are the options?
Double meaning of words, meaning of words in a context. Flee words

Among others based on different philosophies of perception I use following quotes as starting points:
‘The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.’ Aristotle
‘Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue.’ Plato
‘Thinking: the talking of the soul with itself.’ Plato
‘Thoughts without content are empty, intuitions without concepts are blind.’ I. Kant
“Space and time are the framework within which the mind is constrained to construct its experience of reality.” I. Kant
